'N Sync has officially confirmed dates and venues for its upcoming North American stadium tour. Dubbed Pop Odyssey, the run will kick off May 12 in Miami's Pro Player Stadium and wrap Aug. 18 at the Liberty Bowl Stadium in Memphis, Tenn.

Not long into the tour, the Grammy-nominated boy band will release its next album, the follow-up to "No Strings Attached," which set a new record for first week sales last March after it moved 2.4 million copies. The as-yet-untitled album, the group's second for teen-pop powerhouse Jive, is due out in June.

As previously reported, support will vary throughout the tour, with BBmak and 3LW on board in the first few weeks. The production is expected to be extravagant, with pyrotechnics and large video elements allowing the group to interact with the audience. "Fans of 'N Sync will see a completely different show in the stadiums than that of the other venues they have played," said Bruce Kapp, senior VP of touring, SFX Music Group, in a statement.

Tickets for 19 shows -- including dates in Miami, Chicago, Kansas City, Mo., and East Rutherford, N.J. -- are already on sale. Ticket information for remaining dates will be released in the coming weeks, and will be updated on the group's official Web site.

"No Strings Attached," which in December earned the Recording Industry Association Of America's diamond award for U.S. sales of 10 million copies, is at No. 38 on The Billboard 200 this week. The set spawned three hit singles, including "This I Promise You," which the group performed last week at the Grammy Awards.
